How to Save Money at PETSURG

Schedule Regular Vet Visits

One of the best ways to save on vet bills is to prevent expensive health issues before they develop. By scheduling regular wellness checkups, your vet can detect health issues early, helping you to avoid costly treatments and surgeries down the road.

Price Shop for Pet Prescriptions

Oftentimes our fur babies are prescribed human drugs off-label. Your vet is apt to charge more for these medications than you would pay at your local pharmacy. In fact, big-box or chain pharmacies can offer steep discounts. So it’s best to price shop.

Pet Insurance

Most pet insurance providers will pay between 80% and 90% of the vet bill. You can even get coverage for routine care and things like vaccinations and dental cleanings. If you do the math, you’ll most likely find that pet insurance makes financial sense in the long run as well as gives you peace of mind.

Getting to Know Your New Vet: Essential Questions to Ask

Choosing a new veterinarian is an important decision for any pet owner. You want to find someone who is competent, compassionate, and a good fit for you and your fur baby. To help you get the most out of your first appointment, here's a list of essential questions to ask your new vet:

Tell me about your experience with [pet type].

Different vets have different areas of specialization. Some are experts with cats, some dogs, some pocket pets, and some horses. Knowing that your vet has vast experience treating your specific type of pet can bring you peace of mind.

How do you handle emergencies?

You must know what to do in case of a pet medical emergency. Inquire what after-hours policy the clinic has, whether they have on-site emergency care available, and if they have a relationship with any nearby emergency animal hospitals.

How do you communicate with pet owners?

Good communication is key to building a trusting relationship with your vet. Ask how they prefer to communicate (phone calls, emails, online portal) and how often you can expect to hear from them.

Are there any breed-specific health concerns I should be aware of?

Some breeds are predisposed to certain health conditions. Knowing what to watch out for can help you catch problems early and get your pet the treatment they need.

Do you have any questions for me about my pet?

This is a great question to ask because the answer will show that the vet is interested in getting to know your pet as an individual and is willing to listen to your concerns.

Bonus question: Can I take a tour of your facility?

Getting a feel for the clinic's environment can help you and your pet feel more comfortable during your visits. Remember, you’re not just looking for a veterinarian, you’re looking for a partnership. Do not be afraid to ask these questions and any others you can think of. Any vet worth their salt will be happy to answer them. Because the more informed you are, the better equipped you'll be to make decisions about your pet's care! And that should be every vet’s top priority.

My sweet 18yr old Bella had an emergency late night and the Doctor and her staff are the nicest people ever!! I know my bella felt safe with them over night. All the staff took their time and explained everything in detail with me. Thank you all!

I brought in my kitten after she was spayed and had a really bad infection due to her surgery. Her condition was really critical and Dr. Jones and her amazing team took a great care of her. Dr. Jones Immediately noticed what was going on with her and started her treatment. My cat would definitely have been dead without their accurate and timely diagnosis and i don’t think anyone else could save her other than Dr. Jones and her team. She was hospitalized there and the team kept calling me and keeping me updated. They even called me to check on her for a couple of days after i took her home. Overall Dr. Jones and her team are amazing! They saved my baby! 100% recommended!

Can't believe I trusted Dr Jones around my beloved cat, she's such a bitter and hateful woman! Everyone else in the facility was wonderful but she completely made getting help a definite chore and something pet owners dread rather than look forward to. 👎

ER4PETS really saved us on New Year's day! Over the holidays, my dog had been having gastrointestinal problems, but on New Year's Day it got really bad. ER4PETS was the only location open, so without knowing who they were, we raced our pup over. They were quick, attentive, and kind to both me (the stressed out emotional dog mom) and my sweet pup Ollie. They had him healed up and puppin' around within 12 hours. They even gave him a "Certificate of Bravery" for his time spent at the hospital. I would obviously hope my dogs would never need to go to the ER hospital again, but if they do, I have peace of mind knowing exactly where I can take them. Thank you ER Pets!!
